I Have this great idea of a 2d game. Although, im going solo on this project. I knew that C2 would be good for making a 2d game but not for 3d. Anyway, I just need to make sure if this engine has good performance or not? if so, i can publish to mobile devices using this engine

It has good performance, but you need to investigate and optimize your code a little bit. It's easy to make things work, but sometimes hard to make it efficient, depending on what you do. Sometimes people use too much effects that will make the game slow. That's not c2 that's slow, it's usually bad design choices and bad code.

C2 performance, especially on mobile, can be a bit flaky. If you're not doing anything complex, you'll probably be okay.

So as long as i keep it simple, it won't crash or anything?

C2 can handle very complex games for mobiles too, you just need to optimize your code well and work with the limitations of weaker spec devices.
